How do you feel about the release?
I feel great; it’s going really well. We received fantastic feedback on the first couple of songs that we dropped; we can see that the fans are happy. Some new territories even got activated: it’s going well in the US, and for the first time, Germany stands as the country that’s following us the most. It’s taking off well in the UK, Turkey, and Israel too, but these countries have been supporting us for a long time.
What is the meaning of Cyclorama? Why did you go for this title?
We were looking for something surrounding cycles. The concept of the album is about the cycle of life: there is a birth song, there is a requiem; there is a kind of concept behind each track that speaks about the cycles of life. So we were looking for a word around the lexical field of cycles, and we ended up finding this word, which sounded super good too, we were also looking for something beautiful in its writing.
There’s a story of cycle and panorama in this record, something quite visual and temporal. It happens to be a word mostly used in theater and cinema, and as our scenography is based on a form of cyclorama, we said to ourselves, “It definitely fits.” We had a massive crush on that word.
